About The Event
ISA Ga-Tech is pleased to announce the official launch of the Georgia Tech Indonesian Alumni Platform - a new system of maintaining and developing the Indonesian alumni network at Georgia Tech!
Since we are not able to hold our usual Indonesian Cultural Night, we have been focusing our efforts on fostering stronger connections within the Indonesian community here at Georgia Tech. Part of this includes reaching out to the alumni to maintain these connections past graduation, and so we are launching this initiative as a more formal platform to do so!
This is an open invite to all incoming students, current students, and alumni to come join us for our launch event, held fully online over Gather Town. In the spirit of celebrating our alumni, we invited a few alums from varying graduating classes to speak about their unique experience at Tech and what they are currently pursuing in their careers. This will be followed by an open networking and reconnecting session for current students and alumni, so be sure to mark your calendars and we hope to see you there!

About The Georgia Tech Indonesian Alumni Platform
The Georgia Tech Indonesian Alumni Platform is a new system of maintaining and developing the Indonesian alumni network at Georgia Tech. In the past, our efforts to connect with alumni have not been successful in the long term. We are hopeful that this new system will be able to sustain contact between alumni and current students through programs that will benefit both parties.
